D'Angelo may have the hard body and Maxwell the pretty-boy mystique, but no contemporary soul singer can match Luther Vandross's classic, gracefully romantic vocals -- a fact he makes crystal clear with his eponymous debut disc for Clive Davis's J. Records. On Luther Vandross, his first record since 1998's disappointing I Know, the lover man supreme continues to do what he does best. He dazzles listeners with a honey-coated mix of sassy, up-tempo grooves accented by flawless background harmonies as on the bass-heavy "Say It Now" and the bubbly synth groove "Let's Make Tonight the Night" -- which beckons his dance classic "The Glow of Love," sampled by Janet Jackson on "All for You" -- and languid ballads such as the soon-to-be Vandross classic "Hearts Get Broken All the Time" and his soulful cover of country singer Ronnie Milsap's "Any Day Now." As trends change, R&B singers will come and go, but the timeless talent of Luther Vandross is here to stay.
